The following poem was composed when I was a student at Bernon Heights Elementary School, probably when I was in the second or third grade. It won some kind of school-wide poetry contest that was being held then, and I and the rest of the winners had to go down to a local radio station and read our poem on-air, which was, needless to say, an interesting experience. This recording is taken from that broadcast, and features myself reading the poem I had penned.
"Halloween Time" by James Champagne
It's Halloween, and the Ghostly Queen, is sending out monsters all slimy and green. On the streets are headless goons, and a wicked witch flies past the moon. Jack-o-lantern's eyes are bright, as people run in terror or fright. A ghost goes and haunts a house, scaring away a giant mouse. The werewolves run and bite people they've never met, causing many horrible deaths. Vampires bite people on the necks, a giant frog says "Blech!" But out comes the sun, the monsters run, and Halloween is all done.
